The Society for Latin American Studies will hold its annual conference in 2013 at the University of Manchester, welcoming over 250 academics to the two-day event. The conference will run over Thursday afternoon and Friday, and has over 40 panels running in parallel streams, covering many diverse aspects of Latin American studies, in keeping with the broad interests of our membership and the multidisciplinary coverage of SLAS’s journal, the Bulletin of Latin American Research.
The keynote speaker will be Walter Mignolo, the renowned cultural studies scholar and a leading figure of coloniality/decolonial studies. There will be a conference dinner with live music at a local Brazilian eatery, wine receptions and a special session for the postgraduate arm of SLAS, Postgraduates in Latin American Studies (PILAS).
The registration fee covers lunch, refreshments, wine receptions and a hot buffet, as well as access to all the panel and plenary sessions. For the faithful, there will also be the SLAS Annual General Meeting.
The SLAS conference is an exciting international event, which brings together junior and senior scholars and postgraduates from all over the world for two days of lively debate and engagement. We hope you will want to join in!
